Crochet Works in Progress

I  must apologize for not showing you the completed wedding wreaths, my daughter hasn't seen them yet so it would be unfair to do the big reveal without her approval.  In the meantime you can see the components put together in preparation.

I have completed another 12 squares for the blanket, so  very much still a work in progress.

Slow progress I know but I got side tracked with another project I have started, a bedroom rug using chunky wool doubled and a size 10mm hook.  Not quite finished but very impressive, I really do like it.  Another stripe is needed and then once again the fairies to come and weave in the ends, so near to completion yet so far away.  Where are those fairies when you need them......????

 I have also decorated some hand towels to complete the new look.  I need to back the rug so it doesn't slip on the wooden floor, any suggestions with what?

Looking forward to seeing what everyone else has on there hook.

  2. So many little flowers. The wreaths are bound to pretty. Love all your squares. It's nice to step back and see what your accomplishing. It's a good feeling to create isn't it?

  3. Busy woman ! With beautiful projects !
    Have a nice day !

  4. I look forward to seeing your completed wreaths! Sorry that I never visited before, I couldn't find your blog somehow, but I am here now!! Better late than never hey. Thanks for all your lovely comments over at mine. xx

  5. Wow so lovely the the wreaths are going to be fab I'm sure. The squares are looking fab too x

  6. All of your work is so lovely. It's sun to see what's see what you've been working on. I was most interested in your previous blog post on the tea cozies! Fun.

  7. You have been very busy. The wreaths are going to be stunning. Have a lovely weekend

  8. I can only imagine how great those wreaths are going to be. I love the colour green so the blanket has drawn me in today too. Great work. Jo x

  9. A kindred spirit methinks, with all those you've got me wanting to put my hexies aside and start a chunky rug! It looks wonderful! Google something like "rug anti-slip" and see what turns up - I bought a thick sort of pad with a non-slip stick to it for a crochet bathmat, but that was a few years ago and I don't have the packaging...the wreath bits are looking dreamy!

  10. Those squares remind me of my grandmother. I think she called them "granny squares" or something like that. We all got a blanket from her for Christmas one year when we were kids. I remember it was bright yellow with all different colored squares. I don't know what happened to mine but I think my sister still has hers. I wish I still had mine. : (

    Have a beautiful rest of your Sunday!!
